Fifteen members of the Cariboo Piecemakers Quilting Club are currently showing off their talent in an exhibit at the Station House Gallery which runs from until Oct. 28.

The show, entitled “A Common Thread: The Influence of Traditional Quilts on Today’s Quilts,” features 24 beautiful quilts. There are 12 different traditional designs depicted, each with a corresponding contemporary, modern or art quilt version.

Shirley Johnston has made a traditional Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt as well as a modern version.

Janet Bedford has a traditional and a modern version of the Log Cabin.

Reta Seibert has made a traditional and contemporary version of the Broderie Perse pattern.

Elaine Watt has traditional and contemporary Square in Square quilts.

Diane Mousseau has traditional and modern Postage Stamp quilts in the show.

Barb Bowles, Sharon Dubyna and Lyshia Goodhue have teamed up to make traditional and contemporary Friendship Star quilts.

Lyshia Goodie and Linda Isfeld have paired up to make traditional and modern Dresden Plate quilts.

Linda Hicks’ 3D sampler cube is paired with Shirley Pascas’ traditional One Patch quilt. Sharron Dodge and Karen Irvine have made traditional and modern Sampler quilts. Kathy Burgar and Lonnie Klassen have paired together on traditional and contemporary Jacob’s Ladder quilts.

We hope that many quilt enthusiasts will come out to see the show at the Station House Gallery.
